Round 2 Analysis

I think many of you already know that I am a big fan of Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen, partly because I own him in two other keeper leagues, and party because he is now a 20-20 hitter. Since, I already drafted Evan Longoria in the third round, I decided not to draft Ryan Zimmerman or David Wright. I thought about drafting a starter here, but I like 20-20 hitters a lot more than an ace starter.

A couple picks surprised me: Dudedudedude taking Hanley Ramirez and Jose Reyes back to back was surprising. Did he draft Reyes in case Hanley has another bust year in 2012 :)?

The other surprise, for me, was drafting Stephen Strasbug before Roy Halladay and Justin Verlander. Then again, some can argue that he can be the next Halladay as soon as 2013 (he will be on an inning limit in 2012). I can't argue against that logic, as Strasburg is one of the top starters in all of baseball, and has the potential to be top 5 as soon as 2012.

I like Desmond Jennings pick at the end of the second round. Reason: he can be the mini Andrew McCutchen as soon as 2012, and probably will steal more bases.
